Project: Metrology for radioactive waste management

Many nuclear power stations in Europe, and across the rest of the world, are in the final stages of their life cycle and are being prepared for the decommissioning process. This requires the disposal of thousands of tonnes of nuclear waste and, in order to do this safely and cost effectively, it is necessary to accurately measure the radioactivity of the materials involved. This project will develop novel methods, standards, decay data, reference materials and instruments for improved radioactive waste measurements and to assist with the successful decommissioning of nuclear power plants.
